Medical cannabis in the state of New Jersey has an expansion lined up and a cannabis industry event scheduled for October. The cannabis industry event, NJ Cannabis Insider, is scheduled for October 2nd at the New Jersey Convention and Exposition Center in Edison. A primary focus of the event is to hold a discussion on the current stance of medical cannabis, recreational cannabis, hemp and cannabidiol (CBD) in the state of New Jersey. Beth Stavola, touted as one of the top executives in the cannabis and CBD industry, will give a keynote speech at the event. The focus of her speech is reported to cover her rise in the cannabis industry and the direction of the cannabis industry in the future.
Beth Stavola is the current chief strategy officer at iAnthus, co-founder of CBD for Life and previous chief operations officer of MPX. Both CBD for Life and MPX were acquired by iAnthus this year. iAnthus managed to win one out of only six medical cannabis licenses allowed by the state of New Jersey in its program expansion. MPX, owned by iAnthus, is expected to have planted cannabis by the first few weeks of December and an Atlantic City dispensary by first quarter’s end of 2020.
“I personally agree that there is plenty of room for those licenses. We believe that at iAnthus, New Jersey will be a very healthy market for these companies and consumers,” said Stavola.
The NJ Cannabis Insider event lasts for a full day and will provide participants with panel discussions, networking opportunities and lunch. Tickets for general admission are priced at $180.
